Video: Montana of 300 – “Play Doe”
The Chicago Rapper Turns Up to the Finer Things In Life In “Play Doe” Visual, Premiered by HotNewHipHop
Gearing up for the release of his debut solo album Fire In the Church, bubbling Chicago rapper Montana of 300 vibes out with his crew in the visual for “Play Doe,” rapping about rocking designer labels and enjoying the finer things in life with lines like “stacks on top of stacks look like I’m stacking Legos.” “Play Doe” premiered via HotNewHipHop, who said “Montana of 300 is quickly ascending into the top of ranks of Chicago’s A-class street rappers.” The track a single from Montana’s breakthrough Cursed With a Blessing mixtape, which he released last year.
Often referred to as “Rap God,” Montana of 300 has been building strong momentum, dropping original hits like “Holy Ghost,” “Ice Cream Truck,” and “All I Ever Wanted,” along with an impressive string of remixes, including Dej Loaf‘s “Try Me,” Fetty Wap‘s “Trap Queen,” OT Genasis‘ “Coco,” and Nicki Minaj‘s “Chiraq,“ which have each accumulated millions of YouTube views. “He’s closer to someone like Kevin Gates or Durk than say [Chief] Keef,” said Passion of the Weiss in a feature spotlighting Montana of 300 earlier this year. “At heart, he is a rapping-ass rapper, snapping at cyphers and shilling mixtapes since 10th grade. The sober son of a Vice Lord and a former crack addict, there’s a mixture of pain and aggression in most bars. You might mistake this for simplistic street shit, but there’s the sort of hunger and ferocity found in almost every great rapper that ever really started from the bottom.”
Montana of 300’s debut solo album Fire In the Church is releasing December 1st, the one-year anniversary of Cursed With a Blessing. Along with Fire In the Church, Montana of 300 has a collaborative effort with longtime rap partner Talley of 300 slated for September.

Montana of 300 is an independent rapper from the South side of Chicago. Wearing a bandana underneath his rope like/twisted dreads and covered in tattoos, Montana’s YouTube presence has blown up, with his remixes of Dej Loaf’s “Try Me” racking in almost 8 million views and “Chiraq” clocking 7 million views, to name a few. Often referred to as “Rap God,” Montana of 300 got his start back in 2008 when he named himself after the movie 300, adopting the movie’s underlying motif “No surrender, no retreat” as his own anthem. Known for his back-to-back flurries of mind-blowing metaphors, unforgettable quotes, inspirational stories of struggle and his aggression, Montana’s music is spreading fast, keeping the people talking and running to tell the next. Being versatile and dropping hits like “Holy Ghost,” “Ice Cream Truck,” and “All I Ever Wanted,” he shows us that he’s way more than just another Chicago rapper. He never fails to crush all the competition and his fans go nuts every time. Montana of 300 has been turning down record deals, saying he’s comfortable with how he’s doing while planning on staying independent.
